Another Argeneau Vamp book that i really enjoyed! The first half dragged just a little bit for me though. Even though Lynsay Sands signature comedy was still ever present..which i LOVE!...the descriptions of every day tasks were kind of bogging it down some, but once the two main characters FINALLY got picked up. I had seen some people mentioning the tin foil scene but had completely forgotten about it until I was reading it and i was ROLLING!!!..HILARIOUS!!! The second half of this ...more
While I did enjoy this read I just didn't find it memorable at all. I could have gone without reading it and not even noticing.

I believe this author has arrived to a point where all her books look the same, at least in what this series is concern. While I loved the first books in it, the latest have been very predictable and lineal. Lately we always have the same bad guy and the same plot. AND I'm terribly bored of hearing out the nanno story developed in so many pages, why explain it over and

This is another fun Argeneau novel by Lynsay Sands. In a previous book, "The Rogue Hunter", Samantha (Sam) Willan and her sisters Jo and Alex had rented a cabin in the mountains to get a chance to relax and take a break from their stressful lives. In the meantime, in the cabin next door, are Rogue Hunters, or "vampire cops" as one likes to dub their group. There's been a series of 'bites' happening to the humans in the area, and it's against Immortal Law to feed off humans. The two groups meet o ...more

I laughed my ass of reading this book!! Like I have with almost all the otherbooks in this series.

Has there already been 14 Argeneau Vampirebooks? Really?! Well, actually there's more now, but I'm kinda behind on these.

Thisone wasabout Cale the immortaland Alex the chef...and of course Marguerite has used her psychic matchmaking skills and setup Caleto finally find his life mate...Alex. As usual, thestory was predictable and brainless, but I still had a lot of fun reading it.And then there was a
I really liked this book because it is a type of comfort for me. I know what to expect and Ms. Sands continues to deliver. I have not been happy with her last two books but this book was entertaining. It remineded me of her past writings. I expect to get an HEA and I know there is going be trouble at the end of the book but the couple will prevail.

Alex Willan is a chef trying to open a new restaurant. She has encountered several episodes of bad luck but when Cale Argeaneu enters into her life th
Hungry for You is one of the best Argeneau books to date! Kudos to author, Lynsay Sands, for producing a fourteenth book in a series that is still fun and fresh enough to serve as a stand-alone title - especially in a day and age when most bestselling authors resort to popping out overly formulaic, cookie-cutter books every other month instead. This book is a perfect recipe of romance, mystery and fantasy resulting in a fun, quirky vampire romance that will leave even the pickiest paranormal rom ...more

Cale Valens is one of the ancient immortals, born in 230 BCE, and the nephew of Marguerite Argeneau, matchmaker extraordinaire. He's also a serious, staid fellow, a mercenary in his previous life but now a businessman in Europe with great taste in expensive suits. When he arrives in New York for a multiple-immortal wedding, Marguerite tells him he needs to meet Sam's sister Alex. Sam has two sisters whom she's very close to, Jo and Alex, and didn't want to change when she met her lifemate, Morti ...more
Pretty good read...I've become attached to this family so I enjoy keeping up on all their news and that's really what their books are like for me. This one was all about the relationship between Cale and Alex without the drama and action but loads of hot loving and sex. I rather enjoyed it.
Highly recommend!!
I loved the creative use of tinfoil in this book *grin* I do wish we could get through just one Argeneau book without having to re-read the description of nanos and Atlantis over again. :P

Tengo que reconocer que lo que mas me gusto de el libro fue el personaje de Cale, me encanto como a veces no entendia lo que pasaba en el mundo actual.
La lectura se me hizo muy amena y rapida pero en el buen sentido, me gustaron los personajes secundarios pero eso no es ninguna sorpresa puesto que amo a la familia Argeneau. Siempre lo digo en todas mis reseñas de los libros de la saga pero sigo esperando que Lynsay escriba la historia de Bricker porque con cada libro que leo de la serie mi enamo
This was the worst book of the whole Argeneau series. The two main characters were just so boring. Cale bumped around, constantly making gaffe's in his attempts to hide his feeding or immortal status from Alex. Alex in turn was so caught up in her restaurant business that she could not see what is right in front of her. These life mates needed a lot of help, so in steps the whole Enforcer gang - Justin Bricker, Mortimer and his life mate Sam, Lucian and his life mate, Marguerite and her life mat ...more

In Hungry For You, Lynsay Sands has penned the 14th installment of the Argeneau Vampire series. I had stopped reading this series a long time ago, probably around book 5 or so, when the series took a turn for the dark. For those who enjoyed the comedies in the beginning of the series, I’m happy to report that Hungry for You is vintage Lynsay Sands. For those who enjoyed the darker side of the series, there is a bit of a suspenseful-ish subplot, though in my estimation, the “mystery” wasn’t very

I am a HUGE fan of Lynsay Sands. She is an auto buy for me no matter what the story is about. In the latest installment in the Argeneau series, we are introduced to Cale and Alex.

We have met Alex in previous books. She is the sister to Jo and Sam Willan. While those two have already found their life mates in previous books, I was waiting on pins and needles to see who the author would pair chef and restaurant owner Alex with. While Cale is no Chef, the author made sure to fit Alex with him as a
Alex Willan is a chef opening a new restaurant, but things aren't happening as fast as they should due to a string of mishaps. Unbeknownst to her, her sisters have become coupled with Immortals, and are trying to find her lifemate so they won't have to continue without her. Cale, the hero, is told that Alex is his lifemate, and jumps in to help Alex open her new restaurant and sort out the supposed mishaps. What was unusual (and refreshing) was that Cale was so OPEN to finding somebody, even if ...more
This one was really bland for me. I didn't feel any connection to Cale, he could have been any guy in any romance novel. The was nothing different about him from any other good guy; even being over 2000 years old wasn't reflect in any of his language or actions, only in his briefly mentioned back story. Alex was a bit deeper, but still pretty generic. There was very little humor (other than the soon to be infamous tin foil scene, which was funny if not terribly original) and no suspense. It was ...more

Alexandra Willan is in a panic. Her restaurant is due to open in two weeks, but her chef just walked out. Then a highly recommended rep

This book series is one of my all time favorites.(Previous Reviews Here) I just know every time I open up one of the books that I'm in for a mix of love, laughs and mystery.
Hungry for you is the latest in the Argeneau Series (which I'm a little late to be reading/reviewing since it came out in Nov) and is true to format.
Marquerite is up to her old tricks.. hooking up members of her family with Lifemates. This time her eyes are set on the last single Wheelan sister, Alex.

Lynsay Sands is one of those authors who writes a series of books that are all pretty similar, so if you read one and don't like it, then you are not likely to enjoy the others. Fortunately, I've enjoyed most of her vampire books, and am not bothered by reading similar stories. In this installation, we meet another "sort of vampire" (immortal infected with nanos) who is looking for his lifemate, and takes another longstanding character's suggestion to see if a local chef might be the one. And of ...more
A comfort food. I like most of the offerings in this series. The vampire mythology is good for me as I don't like the whole undead vampire thing so any explanation that makes them not dead and not have to kill the one they love is good with me. This one is more like the earlier books in the series instead of the last few. In other words it focuses more on the couple and less on the evil set of vampires who are warring with them. It is light hearted but not in a real campy way. Usually the things ...more

Hilarious is all I have to say, honestly it was so funny, right from the start.

Food is such a close subject to my heart, mixed with vampires ahhhh, perfect.

The only thing that I wasn't too keen on was that the entire trio of sisters turned out to be life mates for a vampire.

The funniest part was where Alex found out what Cale was and left him on the roadside, only to go confront her sister's life mate and his friends, she makes a hat out of foil, as if this will protect her thoughts from the va
While this maybe book 14 in the series, I still cant put them down! The stories just seem to flow and even though they are immortals, if you put that part aside, everything else is still very believable.
Following the way that the immortal meets their lifemate and then watching them struggle to whoo them, even when they havnt done that in a very long time...not to meantion their brains not seeming to work, just like when you start a new relationship.
Alexandra has been having alot of badluck late
Darn my mother for giving me this book to read. I really don't need another vampire series to consume me! :) But this book was so good, I now am going to have to go and read the 13 books that came before it. I liked the easy story line that was intriguing but fun to read too. And the special twist on your usual vampire storyline was interesting. I look forward to finding out more about the Argeneau vampires.
i AM SITTING ON EGG SHELLS HERE!!!!!! i reall y want to read this book, can't wait!!!!! I hope lynsay keeps going with this series cause i would love to read about justin finding his life mate. I love this new character name cale and love that lynsay let the three sister's all have life mates to nickolas to josephine, mortimer to samantha, and Cale to alex. TOOO CUTE!!!!!!
Ohhh dear... este foi o primeiro livro da serie que li, e simplesmente A-D-O-R-E-I....
Foi maravilhoso. Valeu cada estrelinha que dei.
A historia tem seus momentos divertidos. Cale e simplesmente demais... ele e dvertido, sexy, tem esse ar de seguranca, que eu particuarmente acho secy num homem... ;)
E Alex? Uma das minhas preferidas.. mulher independente, que nao desiste facilmente...
Ahistoria nao e simplesmente um mar de rosas, ela tem um quê e suspense, apesar de ser bem obvio quem e o vilão d
Samantha (Book Lover's Cozy Cafe)
This wasn't my most favorite of the series. There wasn't that flare that I enjoy in Ms. Sands books. It was basically a girl playing hard to get for a little bit then BAM porn central, and a little bit of intrigue on who was sabotaging her, and attacking her. Yeah it just wasn't my fav of the series is all.
This story is painfully one note. There isn't much suspense at all. And when Sands tried to create some element of suspense, it was resolved way too quickly. I know these are romance novels and we all know how they're going to end, but the stories still need to be entertaining and all-consuming. I want to care about what happens to these characters. There needs to be some scenes that make you question how things are going to work out or whether or not they'll work out at all or how the author is ...more
I enjoy this series - it's easygoing and funny, with a different angle on the whole Vampire concept. Although this wasn't among my favorite books in the series, it was still fun and another solid entry.

Another great Argeneau book. LS is a great silly light read author. She is original & makes sense no matter where you start in any of her series. Therefore, if you want pure entertainment, Just pick one up!
A witty story that gives light on being a chef and a manager. I liked all the hassle that happened as well as the accomplished feeling after each problem was solved.

I think I also hit the jackpot again here. This is the first book I’ve read from this series, and the history of the immortals was already explained, though that may have already been mentioned in the previous books, I wouldn’t know.

I absolutely adore Cale and how modern things dumbfound him. It’s kind of funny to see him fumble abou

“Alex grinned and then walked past him, murmuring, "I applaud you for your courage."
"Courage?" he asked with confusion.
"Hmm." She headed for the door to the hall, swinging her purse gaily as she went. "Many men find it difficult to come out of the closet.”
“I thought you said that after this many years nothing should embarrass him?" Leigh said with gentle amusement.

Lucian grunted. "I guess he's more sensitive than I thought."

"I am NOT sensitive," Cale snapped, irritated by the very suggestion.

"It's probably his mother's fault," Lucian said, ignoring him. "Martine named him after Caliope, the muse of poetry. Between that and his father dying when he was only fifty, he's probably suffered under Martine's namby-pamby influence.”
